A $2.7 million project will soon break ground in southeast Missouri.

The 16,000 square foot Head Start program will be built on Hornbeck Street, a couple blocks from the Senath School District.

The program will serve children in the southern portion of Dunklin County.

Mayor Joe Lane said he is excited to have the Head Start program come to town.

He said it will be a big plus for the community.

“It will bring more jobs to Senath and the people who work here and don't live here, they will spend some money here,” Lane said. “It will be an asset to the city.”

The program will bring 30 jobs to the city, according to Lane.

He expects to break ground within the next couple of weeks.
